Wells Fargo Championship odds 2022: There is a staggering price discrepancy on this rising star
Kevin C. Cox
Given the trend of recent PGA Tour winners—Scottie Scheffler at the Masters, Jordan Spieth at Harbour Town, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay at Zurich, Jon Rahm in Mexico—chances are this week's Wells Fargo Championship winner is going to be another elite, top-of-the-odds-board player. You might as well click Rory McIlroy at 7-1 and be done with it.
Of course, we know gambling on golf isn't that easy, even if it's appeared to be over the last month. If anything, now is the time to buck the trend of the favorites and scroll a little bit further down the board in search of value. One name that jumped out is Cameron Young, who is 28-1 on the DraftKings Sportsbook and 50-1 (!) on the FanDuel Sportsbook. Quite the discrepancy on the rising star who most recently tied for third at the RBC Heritagem marking his third finish of T-3 or better on the PGA Tour this season. Let this be a lesson to all you novices out there: always shop around for the best lines.
Sandwiched in between McIlroy and Young are the likes of Corey Conners, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Tony Finau, Tyrrell Hatton, and Abraham Ancer, among others. Keep in mind, this event is not at its usual venue, Quail Hollow, as the Charlotte, N.C., track prepares to host the Presidents Cup in September. This week's event will be played at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, where Francesco Molinari won the event in 2018 and Kyle Stanley in 2017.
